Visitors can learn more about biodiversity at our sponsored zebra sculpture, Zebraversity. There will be a series of events held next to the sculpture throughout the summer.

Zebraversity is number 37 in Marwell's Zany Zebra's sculpture trail, and is located next to the Queen's Peace fountain in East Park.

The events are co-ordinated by Dr Judith Lock from Biological Sciences and are run by BioBlitz interns Megan Holgate (MEcol Ecology) and Oliver Cockroft (BSc (Hons) Biology).

What's on

Free, family-friendly events will run at our zebra sculpture, from 10:00am until 16:00pm. Evening talks will run at the Flying Aubergine cafe from 5pm.
